Library of Care

curated by Vassily Pigounides, Nika Dubrovsky

Dear readers and friends in Care!

We are in the process of obtaining permission to distribute links to these texts, but here are the titles and authors of the books. Meanwhile, you can find the texts yourself online or in bookstores.
This library was originally assembled by the curator of the room, Vassily Pigounides and now it developed by Nika Dubrovsky. We are looking for more curators to join us.
If you can recommend other books related to freedom and care, send us their titles.
